In 1983, concerned about the need to record and explain the experiences of Okinawans caught up in Battle of Okinawa, the local Ryukyu Shimpo newspaper carried out several hundred interviews with survivors. With explanatory comment added, this was published first in serial form, then later as a book. Tens of thousands of Okinawans were killed in the relentless bombardment by American forces, ten of thousands more local recruits died in Home Guard units, thousands of starvation and malaria in places away from the fighting, hundreds of young students died in the Blood and Iron Student Corps or as nurse's aides tending to wounded soldiers in hospital caves, and hundreds of evacuees lost their lives in ships sunk by U.S. submarines or aircraft. There were even people who took their own lives, or the lives of loved ones, to avoid what they had been told by the Japanese Army would be a far worse fate at the hands of American captors. Descent into Hell is the story of this apocalyptic struggle as told by those Okinawans who survived.

Bright, attractive, and both from good families, University of Texas college student Colton Pitonyak and vibrant redhead Jennifer Cave had the world at their beckoning. Cave, an ex-cheerleader, had just landed an exciting new job, while a big-money scholarship to UT's prestigious business school lured Pitonyak to Austin. Yet the former altar boy had a dark, unpredictable streak, one that ensnared him in the perilous underworld of drugs and guns. When Jennifer failed to show up for work on August 18, 2005, her mother became frightened. Sharon Cave's search led to Colton's West Campus apartment, where Jennifer's family discovered a scene worthy of the grisliest horror movie. Meanwhile, Colton Pitonyak was nowhere to be found. A Descent Into Hell is the gripping true story of one of the most brutal slayings in UT history—and the wild "Bonnie and Clyde-like" flight from justice of a cold-blooded young killer and his would-be girlfriend, who claimed that her unquestioning allegiance to Pitonyak was "just the way I roll."

Pope John Paul II and Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI) both held Hans Urs von Balthasar in high regard. Many assume that their praise of Balthasar implies approval of his theology of Holy Saturday, but in this book Lyra Pitstick shows that conclusion to be far from accurate.Pitstick studies the theological statements of John Paul II, Joseph Ratzinger, and Hans Urs von Balthasar regarding the creedal statement that Christ "descended into hell," and she shows that there are radical differences in their conclusions. She then addresses some important questions that arise from her findings: If one or more of them is wrong, who is it? What then should we make of the popes' praise of Balthasar? If John Paul II and Benedict XVI have lauded someone with whom they disagreed, are there implications for papal infallibility?This careful, concise exploration of what three of the twentieth century's most famous Catholic theologians had to say about Christ's descent into hell provides a clear discussion on a difficult point of theological debate.

A GRIPPING CRIME NOVEL - FAST-PACED - LOADED WITH SUSPENSE - A ONE SITTING READ! Corona, New York, 1946. After fighting the Nazis in Europe, Francis Robert Sullivan, known to everyone as Buddy, believed he'd seen the worst men could do to each other, but he still believes in fighting for what is right. Although half-Irish, Buddy is devoted to his Italian mother's heritage, and he is determined to be a cop like his dead hero, Joe Petrosino, known as the Italian Sherlock Holmes, of the New York City Police Department, at the turn of the 20th century. Filled with youthful idealism, Buddy is recruited for a special task force, working with the FBI, and led by Precinct Captain Michael Lewis. The team consists of Buddy, Darnell James, Steve Morgan, and Ryan O'Malley. Their assignment-Go undercover to bust a crime ring smuggling diamonds, drugs, and guns into the country; that crime ring is centered in the Italian-American ghetto of Corona, New York. Buddy finds himself on a collisions course with Gaetano Manzone, a dangerous criminal who has hatched a daring scheme and, despite his criminal activities, has gained a measure of loyalty from their shared community. Regardless, Buddy has no second thoughts about taking down Manzone's organization, until he discovers a woman is standing between him and the mob boss. This woman holds the success or failure of both men in her hands. "Buddy," Darnell whispered. "You gotta get here." Darnell was desperate as he rattled off an address. "I'll be parked in the lot next to the building." "What's wrong?" Buddy asked, but the line went dead. Buddy had a bad feeling but drove as fast as the dirty, snow-covered streets narrowed by mounds of snow allowed, making his way to Darnell. He arrived at the address on a deserted, dark street. Wondering why Darnell had picked this poorly lit area, he saw Darnell's car alone in the lot. Buddy turned in and blocked the entrance so no one could get in behind them. At the back of the lot, there was a pile of dirty snow left by the snowplows. The driver's side of Darnell's car was closer to the windowless brick wall of an apartment building, and he saw Darnell's silhouette sitting behind the steering wheel, staring straight ahead. Buddy turned off his engine, killed his headlights, and got out. Standing behind the open car door, one hand on his gun, he scanned the lot and the street for any other persons lurking or watching. Other than the lights coming from apartment windows across the street, there were no signs of life. He waited another minute, turning his head from side to side. No one. Nothing. Only silence. Satisfied they were alone, Buddy closed his car door without slamming it and walked to the driver's side of Darnell's car, but continued to scan the lot and the street, his combat experience serving him well. Without looking down, Buddy knocked on the window. Darnell didn't move.Buddy knocked again and glanced down. His heart missed a beat, as he yanked open the door. Darnell, barely breathing and covered in blood, slid out toward the ground, clutching something in his hand that would change Buddy's life forever. Now, doing the right thing may go disastrously wrong. There is more than life and death at stake in this game. "Captivating: "Descent Into Hell is a well-balanced character study with plenty of action, humor, and surprising turns, and a fiery, New York slice of life." SPR reviewer

Many have made the journey. None have ever returned... Wandering through a dark forest, Dante finds himself at the gates to the underworld. Despite his terror, he dares to enter the Circles of Hell, where the damned lie in torment. As he descends deeper, he encounters wild-eyed sinners, sees the three-headed, howling hound Cerberus, and meets a long-dead prophet who foretells Dante's destiny. He passes through realms of fire and ice, and at last reaches the frozen heart of Hell - where the hideous Satan, greatest of all the damned, lies in wait...

""Even though women were not supposed to be on the front lines, on the front lines we were. Women were not supposed to be interned either, but it happened to us. People should know what we endured. People should know what we can endure."" -- Lt. Col. Madeline Ullom More than one hundred U.S. Army and Navy nurses were stationed in Guam and the Philippines at the beginning of World War II. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, five navy nurses on Guam became the first American military women of World War II to be taken prisoner by the Japanese. More than seventy army nurses survived five months of combat conditions in the jungles of Bataan and Corregidor before being captured, only to endure more than three years in prison camps. When freedom came, the U.S. military ordered the nurses to sign agreements with the government not to discuss their horrific experiences. Evelyn Monahan and Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee have conducted numerous interviews with survivors and scoured archives for letters, diaries, and journals to uncover the heroism and sacrifices of these brave women.
